hello. it is i, cass, six-time winner of the Most Likely to Not be Ame award.
today i am going to let you in on a little secret.
you may have noticed that it's been over a year since our last release.
now, in that time, we've gotten some stuff Done
especially the ai.
now, y'all are still out there running that old e18 ai
and lemme tell you.
it is garbage.
the ai always thinks it's faster than you. it sends out types that your pokemon are super effective against. item use occasionally scores 12000 on a scale that effectively peaks around 100. it sucks. it has been annoying the hell out of me for months.
now, as you might also have noticed, it is the season for the Giving of Gifts.
so we're putting out a little holiday update.
it is not e19.
i shouldn't really have to say that. we have progress bars. we keep saying that it won't be out for quite a while yet. it will also 100% not be a surprise. it will take months of testing before it's ready.
but a little package of ai updates and small fixes?
we can do that in a week.
so today i'd like to announce the e18.2 release. it's an aipdate!
there's a good deal of stuff that isn't in this.
last week i stared ame in the face, and was like "y'know what would be great? let's put out a mini release for the holidays as a surprise present!"
and she was like "hhhHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok fine"
the number of h's in that quote is inversely proportional to what I was able to convince her to add. a very limited testing period means that we can't really check for fatal bugs terribly well.
but there is some nice new stuff!
- A Fuckload of AI updates.
- A Smalload of trainer updates.
- HP bars move faster.
- The ability to forfeit trainer battles.
- Multiple active save slots
- New animations
it's not a whole lot, but we really wanted to get something out there for y'all.
hope you all enjoy!
